    I don't know dyna glide, but for the same strength ratings I don't see you saving any weight.

    Amsteel 1/8" = 8.0 oz / 100'
    Amsteel 7/64" = 4.8 oz / 100'
    Dynaglide = 2.4 oz / 100'

    Sorry I should have been clearer, 2mm pre-stretched Dyneema fiber vs 7/64 Amsteel Blue. I was just wondering how much weight you were actually saving.

    The weight for a 6 foot pair of Dynaglide whoopie slings is 20 grams. 6 foot 7/64" Amsteel whoopie slings are 40 grams.
